Overpriced Ebay Junk, vs treasure
This looked like over-priced eBay junk.
Then, I looked at the details. The only thing missing is a hand level, or Abbey level. (Usually not needed on level ground)
I am sure that most of the older generation will appreciate it. I personally never used any of what is in the ad. But, I sure knew their use, and purpose.
Enjoy the trip down nostalgia lane.
That collection appears to have been used by a millwright. A hand level wouldn't be particularly useful there - they would want super precise leveling over a moderately small distance, the size of the machine base.
You are right, Bill.
When the gnat's behind matters, it's what is needed!
A work vehicle passed us with Great Lakes Alignment Surveying Survices written on it and it had Michigan license plates. What's that?
They align plant machinery.
Does not appear to be junk, just no longer useful.
